To begin a post on my LA experience proven to be quite the challenge. I mean, how do you chronicle a 9-day journey in one of the most biggest cities in the world and detail every single pit stop there is out there? Tough one, I might add; judging from the 1,568 images currently backlogging my camera card space from Los Angeles alone! If there…

#HYTravels: Milan

Dec 27th, 2015 Travel, Uncategorized rojakcouture 23 min read

I have only managed to stay for 3 days in Milan, but throughout those few days, it was suffice to secure my beliefs that Milan is one of those places in my list that I could foresee myself living in. Indeed the obvious would be credited to its fashion scene; great food and gorgeous Italian men (ha!) so to conclude my honeymoon trip in the city…

A newbie in the scene. Covering the first actual Fashion Week experience as an editor was a daunting but exciting task indeed. It was a different POV when taking over the task of covering shows as an editor; and at London Fashion Week no less 🙂 For my first day reporting on the line for The List magazine (that’s thelist-mag.com!), I had my hands on…

We’ve covered the sexy, albeit cluttered beaches, the sights and sounds in Ubud and the jaw-droppingly beautiful hotel; it’s only fair to end the last post of my Bali trip with coverage of what’s close to my heart; food! There are countless of great spots to get your tummies filled with great food. Coffee lovers, tea lovers, people watchers can find everything that would suit…

De Ja Vu in Sri Lanka : Galle

Jun 21st, 2015 Travel, Uncategorized rojakcouture 25 min read

It was Saturday, and it was just in time for both of us to be fully recovered to enjoy the beach life in Galle. With very minimum info on what Galle could feast to us, I decided to let ourselves be in the dark and (hopefully) surprise us with pleasantries of the location. Along the drive towards Galle, you could mistake the view for Kedah; surrounded…

De Ja Vu in Sri Lanka : Colombo

Jun 20th, 2015 Travel, Uncategorized rojakcouture 33 min read

Upon first impression, Sri Lanka was hardly a part of my travel checklist. Ignorant me would assume that Sri Lanka is another extension of India, sharing almost similar traits of cultural DNA and geographical elements to that of southern India. I have only been to Mumbai and Delhi before, therefore, I pretty much base my thoughts of the island nation to scenarios I have picked up…

Kepyok State of Mind

May 10th, 2015 #ootd, Fashion & Beauty, Reviews & Ramblings, Travel rojakcouture 11 min read

Through the long weekend, I felt my getaway in Cameron Highlands was a an ‘inadequate’ experience. Bringing my itchy feet along, I got hold of an earlier reference from a friend on a tiny getaway shack in Beranang. Named Kepyok (javanese for Gate), the entire compound belonged to a Malay man and his Japanese wife who used to stay in Subang themselves, and converted what…

Cast Away at Koh Li Pe #DatinsOnVacay Part 2

Day2 was bliss. Waking up to the sunrise view of the distant Langkawi island view. Made even more majestic with the golden rays piercing through the grey clouds. The bungalow we stayed in has no air-conditioning by the way, but the overall climate temp in the house was cool, all due thanks to a trickle of April showers in the morning. Inspiring Sarah and Aiman…

As you all may have already know by now, I had a simple getaway disguised as a bachelorette do in Langkawi and now, Koh Li Pe (#DatinsOnVacay!). Now, I have never been a beach person, or an adventurous person at that; so this 5 hour ride from KL to Kedah, ferry from Kuala Kedah to Langkawi and then the ferry ride from Telaga Harbour to…

My Langkawi Weekend at Bon Ton and Temple Tree Resort

Apr 23rd, 2015 Travel, Uncategorized rojakcouture 17 min read

Conjoining my birthday/bachelorette adventure on the weekend, I opted for a one night stay in the mystical Island of Langkawi on Thursday. Since the stay was planned in Langkawi (prior to the hop to Koh Li Pe the next day), I decided to explore an unconventional stay on the island than the usual one-night bunk in Chenang beach. I scrolled countless hotels in Langkawi that…
